MSC Sinfonia – Day 11 – At Sea

Day 11 – At Sea

There is no silence on the sea. Not on a cruise ship under way. The dull muted growl of the engines below and the sound of the water shushing beneath as the vessel travels forward, cutting through the waters.

With a still surface surrounding the forward passage, there is little sound of waves against the side, only soft murmurs of people from upper decks drowned out by the constant background rushing of the waters below.


After finishing up the Kauni Sleeve, I decided to knit the first of the front facings. Brain was dead somewhere. Way too many stitches on too big a needle. Maybe tomorrow I will have enough energy for the frog pond.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
